'Pornographic' Recordings Disrupt Mass (Santa Fe, NM)

Worshipers were interrupted during an Ash Wednesday service at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis by a trio of hidden CD players spewing "pornographic" messages from beneath pews.
Three CD players had been duct-taped beneath the pews and rigged to go off at 12:20 p.m., Santa Fe Police Capt. Gary Johnson said. An Ash Wednesday service was being conducted at the time, and Johnson said responding officers described the messages to him as pornographic, although he wouldn't go into detail about their content.
The cathedral staff found and removed the three CD players, then called police while church-goers evacuated the cathedral.
The bomb squad arrived at 1 p.m. and destroyed two of the devices, Johnson said. Realizing the devices didn't contain explosives, officers saved the third CD player for evidence.
"We take this very seriously," Johnson said. "We'll be analyzing the piece of equipment for DNA and fingerprints. We'll also be reaching out to the federal authorities. We're going to use whatever resources we can possibly use to solve this case."

Another arrest in airline bomb plot
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "LONDON, England, Mar. 1 (UPI) -- Police in London have arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with the 2006 planned liquid explosive attack on U.S.-bound passenger jets, police said."
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Security sources told CNN that the alleged terrorists planned to use electrical charges to ignite liquid explosives over the Atlantic Ocean. The plot was foiled when an intelligence agent infiltrated the group."

Liquid Explosives Hunted Across the Atlantic Busted in Lebanon
Nearly six months after feverish search by U.S. and European intelligence agencies for lethal "liquid explosives" Lebanese police confiscated the first batch of such deadly weapons, sources told Naharnet Tuesday.
One source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said each of the 31 confiscated explosive devices is made up of two tubes filled with blue liquid, fitted on a board and connected to a timer-detonator.
A police communiqué said a squad of its intelligence branch carried out a "swift operation during which it confiscated 31 explosive sets."
The communiqué said the confiscated sets included "sophisticated electro-chemical timers-detonators that can be timed to explode after as late as 124 days."
The sets were confiscated in an area "in the vicinity" of the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp, near the southern port city of Sidon, 45 kilometers from Beirut, the communiqué said.
The sets were to be "smuggled and used in terrorist acts," the communiqué added.
The source, however, told Naharnet the sets were busted nearly 12 days ago in the Sikkeh district of Ain el-Hilweh in a "daring, swift and clean raid."
The sets, according to the source, were "assembled and awaiting a squad to smuggle them to another location. Police, apparently, postponed issuing a communiqué on the bust in an effort to tail members of what is believed to be a major network of terrorists operating between various sectors of Lebanon."
He said material used in the sets is of an "eastern European origin." He refused to elaborate.
British, U.S. and European Union intelligence agencies have been searching since August for the lethal liquid explosives after London said it unveiled a scheme to blow up passenger aircraft on flights across the Atlantic.
Stringent security measures have been applied at almost all western airports, banning air passengers from carrying any liquids, even food for infants.
The Lebanese police operation was the first ever reported bust of liquid explosives in the world.
